The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 240
Chapter 240: Suspicion
Fang Lin could not help but cry with his unlucky streak. He paused as he realized something.
His female body had it a lot better than him!
Whether it was in terms of status, appearance or lovelife, Fang Yu clearly had the edge!
Fang Lin was just a mere sect servant now while Fang Yu was the disciple of the Sect Head. Fang Yu’s seductive appearance was allowed to be seen while Fang Lin had to make himself look like a fatty! Lovelife? Fang Lin technically only had Xue’er with him, while Fang Yu already ensnared the hearts of some women!
“Is this fate fighting against me?” Fang Lin knew that even though he and Fang Yu were just two bodies that he controlled, he considers the experience of each body to be unique and sometimes separate. This might be the effect of staying separated for a long time. He already unconsciously started to make a divide between his two bodies.
Fang Lin shook his head, realizing the predicament he was in. He knew that the highest danger of being a Godly Divine Beast like him was when he was too immersed in his own abilities. He affirmed to himself that he is Fang Lin, and that his two other bodies were just additional facets on his life.
“Wait.” Fang Lin paused, suddenly realizing something. He gritted his teeth as he realized the person who contributed to Fang Lin’s ‘bad luck’.
Of course it was his Master Wang Hao!
Who made him turn into a Fatty? It’s Wang Hao!
Who told him to stay low-key and not grab the attention of the Sect Elders? It’s Wang Hao!
Who was the one who got a harem and gave Fang Lin a pseudo-NTR? It’s Wang Hao!(Pseudo-NTR because Fang Lin liked Tang Ya, who liked Wang Hao instead of Fang Lin.)
Even though Fang Lin knew that Wang Hao had his best interests for him by making him hide his identity and stay low-key, he still could not help but get a little angry with him. As for the harem, well…. It may be just the difference in charm.
Fang Lin shook his head, knowing that even if Wang Hao was the one to be blamed with his predicament, his Master was the one who made Fang Lin reach this far. Getting angry because he just got inconvenienced is not a good attitude, right?
Besides, Wang Hao did not even have to beat up Fang Lin or soak him in some torturous medicine bath to make him stronger…
But even though Fang Lin tried to suppress it, he already formed a doubt against his Master deep in his heart. The doubt was so faint that Fang Lin who was in denial was not able to detect it. But it was now rooted in there, almost hard to remove.
This doubt will slowly grow in the future, and it might possibly even a heart demon that might torment Fang Lin and Fang Yu! The only way to resolve this was to confront and explore it! Only by accepting the doubt and not denying it that Fang Lin can get rid of his possible heart demon.
But if it was not detected early, this might lead to some disastrous consequences!
The current Fang Lin had no idea with his looming crisis as he prepared his countermeasures for the battle stage.
“I have a King with me. That means aside from the Queen and King, any other piece that I encounter will surely bring me in a disadvantage.” Fang Lin thought to himself grimly. “Thus, I can only wish to meet a Queen. If I meet a Queen, my opponent and I will have no choice but to fight it out normally. I am sure that with my Earth Grade Dao and my Dual Step Arts, those who can defeat me at the same cultivation will be rare.”
Fang Lin nodded to himself, liking his plan already. “Once I defeat the Queen, I will use my winner’s privilege to switch my King Piece with the Queen Piece. I will then just spam my strongest skills on my next matches.”
Fang Lin’s second reason on wanting the Queen Piece was that he wanted to show off to everyone here in the Battle Stage his genius talent. He also deserved to get some credit with all the hard work that he had done.
“If I meet a Pawn, Bishop, Rook or Knight, then I will try to finish the match as quick as possible. That’s the only way that I can mitigate the limitation imposed on the King.”
“If I meet a King… then I will just beat it up just like the Queen.”
Fang Lin was highly confident that he will defeat any Queen or King piece holder that he will meet because of his newly created Dao Art, the Dual Steps Art.
If the Mana Materialization Practitioners had their own spells as their offensive and defensive arsenal, Foundation Establishment Cultivators had their own way to channel the power of their Dao. It was the Dao Art.
Simply speaking, a Dao Art is a powerful skill that was the amalgamation of the current dao insights of the practitioner. What was special about Dao Arts was that they get stronger and more sophisticated when the practitioner’s stage gets higher.
One example of a Dao Art was Ling Tian’s self-created 9 Stance Sword Arts. This Dao Art of his gets a new stance at each increase of his Stage. It was the perfect Dao Art that fits him.
As for Fang Lin, he already created his own Dao Art, the Dual Steps Art. This was the result of his arduous meditation along with Fang Yu for the past 6 months. Fang Lin was highly sure the only arsenal he had that was stronger than his Dual Steps Art was his Dual Marks!
“Hey boy, what piece did you get?” Fang Lin looked to Shi Poyun who seemed to be gleeful.
Fang Lin knew that there was no need to hide the pieces that they got, since it will also be seen later at the stage.
“Hehe Big Bro, I got the Bishop Piece! Shi Poyun said as he waved the piece that he got in front of Fang Lin’s face. “This is the best fit for me!”
“…” Fang Lin knew that Shi Poyun’s Windwalker Bloodline will give him the highest advantage in terms of long-range attacks. Him having the Bishop Piece just amps up his threat factor.
Both of them then looked at Tang Ya from afar, who saw their look. She showed the piece that she got, which made Fang Lin’s face turn more sour.
Tang Ya’s advantage was in terms of sword arts. What could be the best fit for her? Of course the Pawn, which was the one she also got.
“Big Bro, why do you look pissed? What did you get?” The innocent Shi Poyun asked as he saw the miserable expression on Wang Hao’s face.
“It’s the King….”
“It’s fine Big Bro, I think you can manage.”
“OK.” The proctor clapped his hands as he said, “Now that everyone had their piece, it’s time to suppress your power.”
Fang Lin suddenly felt a ripple emanating from one of the person seating besides the Sect Leaders. That person must be one of the Elders of the God Continent Branch. It covered everyone of them, not leaving anyone untouched. Fang Lin then felt his cultivation being forced back until it was at the earliest part of the Second Stage. Fang Lin could not help but marvel at the power shown by one of the Elders of the God Continent Branch.
This domain clearly was a domain focused on weakening an opponent! Such ability will be useful on one-on-one fights!
After seeing the participants adjusting to their newfound power, the proctor conjured two bowls that floated in front of him. Inside the bowl, Fang Lin could see some wood blocks engraved with names.
“Ah, so one bowl will have the names of the Immortal Continent Branch while the other one contains the one for the God Continent Branch.” Fang Lin thought to himself as he watched the proctor pick names from each bowl.
He looked at each name, and he announced with his sonorous voice,
“Fang Lin of the Immortal Continent Branch versus Saber Demon of the God Continent Branch!”
“Ok. It’s my turn now. Cheer for me brat! If you do, I’ll give you more apples later!”
“Ok!” Shi Poyun said brightly as Fang Lin leapt and stepped on the stage. Saber Demon, his opponent, also leapt towards the stage. Both of them stared off at each other as they waited for the proctor’s signal.
While they were waiting, Fang Lin sneaked a peak and he tried to see the piece that Saber Demon got. What he saw could only make him mutter,
“Long live the King….”
